Leaks

Leaks
I had one of my best night sleep in awhile. I don't understand the leaks though. Can someone help me understand if the leaks are normal. I have an Apex 220 Wizard FF.

Average = 48.4
Lowest = 48
Highest = 49
large leak time = 0

Average pressure = 7.4
Average 90% = 6.9

AHI = 1.8
Apnea = 0
Hypopnea = 1.8
Snoring = 1

Sleep time = 6.45

Thanks

RE: Leaks
You would have to check, but my guess is that the machine measures both normal venting and unintended leaks, the 0 large leak seems to confirm this.

I don't know what you min pressure is on, but lets get it a bit higher by 1cm for the Hyponea
mask fit http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ask_Primer
For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.
